How A Pro Soccer Player Turned VC Stays Organized

We talk about how Cameron Porter takes notes on meetings and podcasts, how he sets personal OKRs, and about being world-class at multiple things

Most people only get to be world class at one thing in their life. Cameron Porter is already world class at two, and he’s only 26.

As a professional soccer player, he’s scored goals in front of stadiums full of 40,000 screaming fans.

As an investor, he works at Kevin Ryan’s AlleyCorp — originators of MongoDB, Business Insider, and Gilt.

Success like this isn’t an accident. Cameron uses an impressive array of systems to foster his own growth, learning, and productivity. We sat down this week to talk about a few of them:

  • His habit of takings notes on meetings, podcasts, and books in Notion
  • His Sunday evening ritual to review the previous week’s notes and improve his recall
  • The principles he collects to help him run his life and make better decisions
  • How he builds habits and sets personal OKRs
  • A simple trick he uses to stay in touch with his friends
  • How he uses a physical journal to build a living record of his mind
  • How to be world-class at multiple things
